Cops threaten to seize bikes

Motorcyclists not charged with any criminal offence are being handed warning notices by police threatening to seize their bikes. The warnings are issued under legislation designed to tackle anti-social behaviour. They state riders have broken traffic laws and warn their motorcycles will be impounded if caught again.

No offence

but how were you riding?

If you were riding like a dick then the police have every right to seize your bike, although it must be said that there should certainly be presentable evidence.

If you are driving like a prick then you will have broken road traffic laws and should be prosecuted under them in my opinion. It's a vague way of doing it.
